The soon-to-be retail center will have more than 100,000 square feet of leasable space
WASHINGTON, D.C. – (RealEstateRama) — Calmwater Capital, a leading, national direct real estate lender, has originated a $36.7 million loan for Remington Nevada to refinance existing debt and finance remaining construction of the Mountains Edge Marketplace in southwest Las Vegas. Once completed, the 101,000-square-foot retail property, anchored by Albertsons, will be located at the corner of Blue Diamond Road and South Buffalo Drive, adjacent to the Mountains Edge master planned community.
The Calmwater-provided credit facility comprises a $16.6 million senior secured term loan and a $20.1 million delayed draw term loan for future construction costs, tenant improvements and leasing costs.
“Not only is Mountains Edge Marketplace situated in the growing submarket of southwest Las Vegas, but the property contains the nearest grocery anchored retail center to a 14,000 home master planned community,” said Larry Grantham, co-founder of Calmwater Capital. “These indicators for success, combined with Remington Nevada’s team’s extensive experience in retail property development and significant pre-leasing success, support the strength of this investment. We hope for future opportunities to work together.”
Mountains Edge Marketplace is located at the entrance to the 14,000-home, Mountains Edge Master Planned Community, one of the top-selling master planned communities in the country from 2010 to 2014. The property’s grocery anchor tenant, Albertsons, opened its 55,000-square-foot store in April. Remington Nevada has secured a variety of regional and national tenants which will open doors upon the property’s completion including Chase Bank, Burger King, Del Taco and Orange Theory Fitness.
Remington Nevada, a premier commercial real estate development company in the Southwest, acquired the 21-acre site in 2015. The property is slated for final completion in late 2018. It is one of the few grocery-anchored shopping centers to be developed in the immediate area, making it a prime location for junior anchors, shop tenants and restaurants.
